Paleo Diet FAQ

woman-cooking-recipes-720x480Much like any other diet plan newly introduced, the Paleo Diet has got its share of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) too. People are more than interested to know how it can be of help to them. More than anything, their interest is fuelled by the fact that the Paleo Diet promises to deliver results without the actual diet at all. Before you dismiss the Paleo altogether, here are some of the FAQs and the much-coveted answers for them:
How is the Paleo Diet better?
The Paleo Diet is the only diet plan that keeps all the food that your body needs without starving yourself. All that it does is that it makes you go back to the diet that people have during the agricultural revolution, minus all the modern food that your body is used to. Instead of the usual high-glycemic carbohydrate, trans fat-rich foods that you are all too comfortable eating, the Paleo diet will make you go back to the basics of having fresh fruits, organic meat and vegetables and seafood on your diet.
What makes the Paleo Diet unique?
The Paleo diet is unique for the human species, but it is not different from the diet that people are used to. The only difference is that this program is totally simple. It does not require you to count calories because everyone who has a weight problem totally hates counting calories. Instead, the paleo diet allows you to eat what you want to eat until you feel full. The only difference is that it has a set of prescribed foods and type of cooking.
How can a protein-rich diet like the paleo be better than a low-fat diet?
What we were conventionally taught is that in order to lose weight, you have got to go on a low-carbohydrate, low-fat and low-protein diet. It is like practically say that you cannot eat anything and that’s why people hate dieting. With the Paleo, you don’t have to worry about being limited at all. You can indulge in a protein-rich diet and still lose weight. When coupled with proper and regular exercise, you can get the body that you want.
What other benefits does the Paleo diet come with?
Apart from shedding off pounds, the Paleo diet can help you get better health-wise. Because it is all about eating what is great for your body, your body will only be absorbing the nutrients that it needs. In the process, the body is able to burn the fats that it does not need. And because your diet will not include processed foods and those that are rich in starch, you can live your life diabetes free.
Perhaps the most important question to ask is whether or not the Paleo Diet plan is for you. The answer is pretty simple. You have got to give it a try. If you want to know if this diet is the one that could really work for you, then you have got to try it. You’d be surprised at the change that it may be able to bring about.
